Marines And Oshkosh Move Out On New Truck

The U.S. Marine Corps initiated a new program for Oshkosh Defense to build them a heavy, multi-purpose truck. The Logistics Vehicle System Replacement (LVSR) program is for a new tactical vehicle to perform a variety of roles.

The U.S. military had to invest heavily in Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) and up armor their older tactical vehicles, like HUMVEES and trucks. This program will take advantage of that experience to develop and produce a new vehicle to carry out a variety of missions for the U.S.M.C. As the MRAP has had issues working in tactical situations this is another program to fix some of these issues. The contract is worth just over $700 million if all options are exercised. Right now the contract is for about 600 vehicles.

Like the MRAP-ATV program where there will be a lighter, more mobile vehicle developed to work the rougher terrain in Afghanistan the concept of this program is sensible. Oshkosh will stand to do well with this product if it works out and other services and countries buy it.

Authorized Experimental Aircraft certificate issued to Viper Aircraft pilots — Press Release

viper-logoAuthorized Experimental Aircraft certificate issued to Viper Aircraft pilots

Pasco, Washington—Viper Aircraft Corporation is pleased to announce that company pilot Alain Garcia and professional test pilot Len Fox of L.A. Fox Unlimited have both received their Authorized Experimental Aircraft certificate in the Viperjet aircraft.

“This is really an asset to our company and clients,” stated Scott Hanchette, president. “After completing the recommended training syllabus and fulfilling the certificate requirements, our clients will be able to add this designation to their license.” He further states, “To my knowledge, Viper Aircraft is the first experimental aviation company in its class to receive an
Authorized Experimental Aircraft certificate. It is in essence an Experimental Aircraft version of a Type Rating. The holder of this endorsement on their Airman’s Certificate will no longer need to receive a Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the FAA.”

The Authorized Experimental Aircraft certificate is part of the FAA Vintage and Experimental Program established to standardize pilot qualifications, training and certification in experimental U.S. and foreign aircraft. Pilots must pass a comprehensive review and flight evaluation by an FAA Designated Experimental Aircraft examiner.

To learn more about Viper Aircraft and the Viperjet LXR, contact Dan Hanchette at 509.543.3570 or [email protected]

MRAP-ATV Contract Continues On Track

The MRAP-ATV is a program to develop a lighter, more maneuverable Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle for use in Afghanistan. The Army has been working on awarding a production contract by the end of this quarter. Reports indicated that that will happen and one or more companies who are participating in the current testing will receive an order.

The Army and other Services have invested a great deal of money in the last five years into these systems to counter the IED and mine threat in Iraq and Afghanistan. The vehicles due to their size and weight primarily are road bound and provide point-to-point transport. The rougher terrain in Afghanistan and lack of roads has led to the MRAP-ATV requirement. The program has moved fast as basically all of the vehicles proposed are existing systems.

The winner(s) will see a great deal of work quickly as the military hopes to ramp up production and quantities very quickly. The use of MRAP and their force mix are all undergoing study as the U.S. tries to fit them into its regular tactical organizations and doctrine.

Boeing Ships Next-Generation GPS Satellite to Cape Canaveral for Tests — Press Release

Boeing Ships Next-Generation GPS Satellite to Cape Canaveral for Tests

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 25, 2009 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] has shipped a Global Positioning System (GPS) IIF satellite to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida to conduct a series of key tests for the U.S. Air Force’s next-generation satellite navigation system.

Built at Boeing’s El Segundo satellite factory, Space Vehicle 2 (SV-2) is undergoing ground testing to prepare for the launch of SV-1, the first of 12 GPS IIF satellites. SV-2 arrived at Cape Canaveral May 7 aboard a C-17 Globemaster III. SV-2 is being used to execute a consolidated system test (CST), which is a set of one-time, system-level design validation tests involving the
space vehicle, the ground-based control segment, and user equipment. SV-2 is also being used as a “pathfinder” to validate satellite transportation processes and equipment, and to validate the launch site test program, procedures and equipment. After completion of the CST and pathfinder activities, SV-2 will return to El Segundo to prepare for its own launch from the Cape.

“The shipment of this pathfinder satellite keeps GPS IIF on track for its first launch, and continues Boeing’s long, successful history of building GPS satellites for the U.S. Air Force,” said Craig Cooning, vice president and general manager of Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems. “The GPS IIF system will bring more capability and improved mission performance to the GPS constellation.”

GPS IIF is the product of Boeing’s experience with 39 successful satellites from the GPS Block I and Block II/IIA missions and more than 30 years of teamwork with the Air Force. GPS IIF features twice the navigational accuracy of heritage satellites, more robust signals for commercial aviation and search and rescue, and greater resistance to jamming in hostile environments. It will form the core of the constellation for many years to come.

GPS is a space-based, worldwide navigation system providing users with highly accurate, three-dimensional position, velocity and timing information 24 hours a day in all weather conditions. A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems
is one of the world’s largest space and defense businesses specializing in innovative and capabilities-driven customer solutions, and the world’s largest and most versatile manufacturer of military aircraft. Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems is a $32 billion business with 70,000 employees worldwide.

Build A Niche And They Will Come — Kongsberg Wins Another Contract

The U.S. military as part of their various defenses against IEDs and mines has invested heavily in the last several years in remote weapon stations for their HUMVEE and MRAP vehicles. These are turrets where the gunner actually uses various electronic means to operate the weapon from inside the vehicle. This allows them to be behind the most armor and less exposed.

Kongsberg, a Norwegian company, has made key parts for the U.S. Crew Remotely Operated Weapon Systems (CROWS) since its inception. Yesterday they received another contract worth over $20 million for more of their part. In the last two years the Army has purchased almost 4,000 of the CROWS.

The only issue with work like this in defense contracting is that at some point it may end. The Army may buy all the vehicles with CROWS that it needs; or the threat may change requiring a different concept or system. It also may be that the CROWS will be used on more systems requiring more to be produced. Finally somebody else may come up with a better design. For now though Kongsberg continues to do well off of this idea.

There had been some rumors in the past that Israel would not be able to get the advanced fighter due to demands that they be allowed to modify the technology with their own. Israel commonly modifies their equipment with indigenous produced systems and weapons.

The initial buy will be for twenty-five aircraft and expected delivery is sometime in 2014. Congress must still approve the request but normally has no issues with sales to Israel of U.S. weapon systems.

Over the last twenty years the U.S. has placed more-and-more restrictions on technology transfers to other countries with worries that the technology sold will end up in unapproved hands. There are often restrictions on what the buyers can do or access with their systems. Israel’s history of modifying and using the foriegn technology they purchase may have caused second thoughts about selling to them although they have been involved with the JSF since almost program inception.

The JSF will be used by a variety of countries across the globe as it is designed as a replacement for the F-16 and is the only modern U.S. aircraft available for export. Australia and Japan are in discussions with the U.S. about buying F-22 as they would like an aircraft with longer range among other things. Right now the sale of the F-22 is prohibited by law but some in Congress are looking at changing that to keep the production going.

Incident Control Systems Develops New Composite Armor Rapid Escape Door System — Press Release

Incident Control Systems Develops New Composite Armor Rapid Escape Door System

New Bedford, MA, June 23, 2009: Incident Control Systems, LLC has developed a new revolutionary composite armor door system called C-LEADS. C-LEADS is a Composite Lightweight Escape Armored Door System, designed to be a one-for-one replacement for traditional metallic armor doors on tactical and combat wheeled vehicles that provides rapid escape for vehicle applicant. The protection level of C-LEADS is scalable in order to meet vehicle specific requirements. The advanced composite armor technology reduces the weight of up to 30% compared to metallic armor systems while maintaining the same protection level. The composite armor has been successfully tested against IED’s at close range as well as a variety of direct fire threats ranging from the 7.62mm AP to the 14.5mm AP. The C-LEADS design incorporates three rapid escape mechanisms that allow for quick extrication of personnel inside.

The replacement doors have a quick release window box, quick release hinges, and an improved “all in one” combat lock and latch system. These escape mechanisms can be accessed from either outside or inside the vehicle. The U.S. Army has expressed an interest in the C-LEADS design for use on the HMMWV and a partnership to further develop the HMWWV design with the Amy is underway. ICS has designed the C-LEADS doors for the HMMWV, FMTV and MRAP vehicles.

“Our goal was to design a door that could replace heavy steel armor while maintaining the same level of protection. We were able to do this and add additional safety features like the rapid escape devices” said Eddie Terrenzi, VP of Business Development for Incident Control Systems, LLC.

Headquartered in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Incident Control Systems is a small business that specializes in the design, manufacture, and integration of advanced composite armor solutions for military combat vehicles.
